James Hindermeier – Illustration & Design

I’ve always considered myself in the background & for most of my career, I’ve had a representative to do my pitches & presentations.

When RepArt, my former artist rep,  was owned by Donna Cameron, we did not always do glamorous, high profile jobs but there was a steady flow of work. 

Floor plans, maps, we sometimes did work that was mind numbingly, boring & monotonous in it’s task, but it was steady work, & steady income. It filled  the spaces between the more interesting & prestigious illustration jobs that we are best know for.

I work a variety of styles, in a variety of mediums which I enjoy very much. No fear. Come to me with a style in mind & I will bring you that vision.

Admittedly I work best under great art direction & don’t at all mind being directed on the specifics of a clearly stated vision. Everything is better through collaboration. I can also present ideas & guidance accumulated from a long history of design & illustration work.

I will be an extended pair of hands or the mastermind & visionary. As long as it is clear as to which I’m to be. (I default to doing as directed.)

To sum up I don’t balk at simple or tedious & I won’t fold under the pressure of high expectations.  I’m ready for any & all.

Web Development

It’s good to be diverse & I’ve other skills to offer.  

I’ve been creating web pages since the very beginning. Yes, the beginning of web design. I think it was me & one other designer, Brent Flink, who were the first to have info web sites on the internet. Somewhere around 1994 to 1996 I believe. At the time there was only one ISP in all of Vancouver.

I wrote my first HTML in a text editor.

I’ve produced & maintained web site & newsletters through the early 2000’s & have always designed & maintained my own site & the RepArt website up until 2010.

In 2004 I developed an interface using Flash as the front end & PHP  for the back, that allowed members of RepArt to upload, change & delete their own content. This software created thumbnails on the fly & maintained a SQL database of all content. At the time there was nothing like it.
